This stained glass was made in the mid-fourteenth century in Carinthia, Austria. It depicts Saint Kunigunde, queen and the wife of the Holy Roman Emperor Henry II. She has a halo, a crown and holds a sceptre. Her figure is framed by a keyhole medallion formed with a polylobed variation. Near her head there is a Latin inscription with her name: “S. CHUNIGUNDIS”.
